What we read influences our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. If you’re new to Body Kindness, taking action to pull in stories that will help enhance your anti-diet evolution and pushing away stories that strengthen FOMO and your inner critic can be a form of taking back your power.
Even if you don’t see yourself as a writer, if you’re sharing content on social media, you’re educating and you’re standing for something. In this episode I talk to fellow career-changer HAES dietitian and journalist, Carrie Dennett. In our conversation, you’ll learn how to read and write better in the body positivity space and how you can take action when you read BS in the media.
Listen here to Episode 76 here:
